Abstract: In recent years, fantasy sports have received a substantial amount of legislative attention within states. Many states have passed laws that allow for fantasy sports while others have remained inhibitory towards the practice. Interestingly, the major websites in this industry such as FanDuel, Draftkings, Yahoo, iTeam and Fantasy Aces are banned in some states but not in others. In this article, we explore the specific factors that have contributed to states adopting fantasy sports gambling-enabling legislation. We look at factors within states, external factors using a policy diffusion framework, and tertiary factors such as campaign contributions by fantasy sports gambling organizations to explain state legislative activity. Initial findings suggest that all of the aforementioned exhibit an influence.

Abstract: Abstract: This paper presents a theoretically-driven exploratory look at Fantasy Sport leagues using both quantitative and qualitative data. It offers an overview of Fantasy Baseball and Fantasy Football participation based on a survey of users of one major Fantasy Sport website. Theoretically, it explores the idea that voluntary leisure groups occur meaningfully, both online and offline, in an update to Putnam’s concern of contemporary individuals “bowling alone” rather than in recreational “leagues.” Using data on the self-reported composition of Fantasy Baseball and Football leagues to better understand the social context of participation and mixed-methods data on motivations for participation in Fantasy Sports, I offer additional evidence that the social and competitive aspects of online Fantasy Sport participation are as integrated in seamless ways in the lives of men and women today as the online and offline realms of community and social participation. In addition, this paper updates studies on Fantasy Sports participation through new, recent, and wide-ranging survey data to offer a high-level overview of trends and themes.

Abstract: The fantasy sport industry has grown rapidly in the past decade, now boasting 56 million participants in North America alone. More recently, the ascent of fantasy sport appears directly attributable to the rise of new websites offering daily/weekly fantasy games. This study surveys 438 fantasy participants—some who play traditional fantasy sports but not daily, others who participate in daily fantasy sports (DFS). Results reveal that motivations for play do not differ between traditional and daily participants, yet the two sets of respondents differed in terms of media consumption, economic commitment, and perceptions of games being skill vs. chance-based. Ramifications of these differing trends are offered, with implications on the applied and theoretical levels.
